The Benefits Of Using A Conditioner

Conditioner both nourishes and protects hair. It works by sealing your hair cuticle to help prevent heat damage and block external elements such as pollution. This protective layer gives your hair a soft, shiny finish. The conditioner itself also sinks into the hair shaft, leaving the fibres moisturised and strong.

Conditioner is especially great at repairing dry, brittle, and chemically treated hair. However, conditioner is an essential for detangling and enhancing all hair types.

Choosing Your Conditioner

Whilst all conditioners serve the same purpose, it's important to choose one that's been tailored to your hair type and concern. Coloured strands are weaker, so use a conditioner specifically for coloured hair, such as Green People Intensive Repair Conditioner - Coloured/Damaged Hair . This product also works well on thick or dry hair.

If you have fine or thin hair, use a volumising conditioner, such as KEVIN.MURPHY Plumping.Rinse . Always read labels to determine what conditioner is best for your hair type before purchasing.

Conditioners are meant to be rinsed out, left in, or used occasionally as an intensive treatment. Different formulas suit different hair types, so this should also be carefully considered.

How To Use Conditioner?

Label instructions tell you how to apply the product for maximum results. However, you should remember these general rules when using any conditioner:

  • Don't apply conditioner to sopping-wet hair. If your hair is too wet, the product slides off and can't penetrate or coat the fibres. Be sure to wring out your hair before applying conditioner.

  • Use the correct amount. The amount of conditioner you use depends on your hair type and length. Read our guide on how much conditioner to use.

  • Apply the product to the ends of your hair only. Focus on the oldest, most damaged sections. Using conditioner on the scalp and roots can lead to over-conditioning.

  • Distribute the product evenly. Use a wide-toothed comb after application to ensure every strand of hair has been treated.

  • Allow the conditioner to absorb. Your wait time depends on the type of product you use. A rinse-out conditioner only needs a minute or two to absorb, whereas a deep treatment takes much longer.

  • Rinse thoroughly. Rinse until your hair feels fully clean and there's no slippery texture to your hair.

It's important to know the proper way to condition your hair. Good technique prevents over-conditioning and lets you reap the maximum benefits of healthy and well-nourished hair.
